Debacle in Alberta continues: speaker prohibits further questions regarding Redfords conflict of interest. Opposition walks out of the legislature in protest.

Did he rule or not? The article is contradictory on that point. If he didn't, I expect him to rule in her favour. Ugh.

That omnibus will also go through tonight.

That Place projects a comfortable Dipper win in BC, 63-22 in seats.

I don't, 'tis a running meme based on Hatman and others' dislike of it.

Alberta: He ruled that there was no breach. Even though the documents explicitly state that the decision was made by Redford before she left Justice to run for leadership.

14/12/10: Memo signed by Redford: "best choice for Alberta will be [firm's name]."

11/01/11: Memo to deputy AG: "Shortly before Xmas, Minister Redford selected [firm's name]."

Eric Grenier is no Nate Silver. He gets way too much attention for a sh** predictor.

Well, at least, he is one of the few English writers which actually understand a bit of Quebec politics.

Not again.

Nexen deal deadline will be extended. Come on PM, we know what the decision will be. Yes with conditions.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toronto/story/2012/12/04/toronto-rob-ford-court-stay-removal-order.html

Ford stays, for a month at least.

Someone in the PMO is being silly.

Can anybody give me the link to where Grenier says he supports the BQ? I've always been curious what way he leans politically given that he tries almost absurdly hard to be uber-neutral in his 308 posts.

The only thing he tries absurdly hard at is being terrible at everything.

OK, maybe I'm being a little too harsh on him eh?

Apparently nasty words and potentially PET salutes were exchanged between Van Loan, Mulcair and Cullen during the QP-GO interlude.

You're so nice about everything else that I rather enjoy your OTT fuming at him.

For the Bloc thing, that was true around 2008 according to Google. No clue for currently.

As for #HoCbrawl, I don't mind colourful language so long as it's original. *CoughOzCough*

Grenier: I used to follow Trendlines before it got paywalled. Maybe I should subscribe...

Bruce Hyer turned up at a Grit Xmas party with Murray (from Twitter). "Progressive who wants inter-progressive cooperation."

Hahaha. I'm not that really nice. But I do find it amusing that you enjoy my fuming. Seems out of your character, but I guess you're quite loyal Smiley

If anything, he'd join the Greens.

If so, probably ends up like the last guy expelled from caucus who became a Green.

He is probably shopping to see which party will offer him the most.

Hebert pours cold water on the coop idea. Though she doesn't mention the last time that was tried, when May ran against MacKay in '08.

Well, he did tell me one of the  (minor) reasons he moved to Canada was his love of Tommy Douglas and Pierre Trudeau. But he doesn't think much of his son.

F-35 cancelled? Unless this will get denied shortly, much like yesterday's Star report about gun laws.
